Now that we know we will be selling our house next summer, I'm looking at things around here differently. Today I was staring at our house numbers because they are looking pretty shabby (this picture is from a year and a half ago and I edited the house numbers out). We thought we needed to replace the numbers, but we don't want to patch up holes from where the current numbers are hanging, and I realized that we can just spray paint them, which got me looking at the rest of the house. The shutters have faded so much since this picture, and I was never crazy about the blue in the first place. We're going to have to repaint them before we move so now I'm thinking why not paint them soon so we can enjoy the new color for a year? Which is where this post comes in. Have any of you done this before? Do you have any advice?
What color do you think that we should make the shutters and the door? I'm thinking black shutters with a red door. I love red doors. What would you do?
